What if I speak another language?
911 is for everyone! If you speak another language, ask for someone who speaks your language.
  • We have dispatchers who do speak Spanish and if we can get one on the line we will.
  • We also utilize a translating service called Language Line. We can get a translator for any language and have the ability to communicate with the deaf / hard of hearing.
  • It may take a few moments to get a translator on the line, so be patient and do not hang up.
